One day, Ratchet, a Lombax (yellow, human-like creature), witnesses a spaceship crash on his home planet of Veldin. The ship was piloted by Clank, a small robot, who had escaped from his home planet Quartu, shortly after his creation, as he discovers the horrible truth of evil plans to destroy the galaxy by Chairman Drek, whose home planet is so polluted and uninhabitable that he forms a cunning plan to extract chunks of existing planets in order to create a new 'superplanet'. When Clank shares this information with Ratchet, Ratchet agrees to help Clank take down Drek, fuelled by a lifelong desire to go an interplanetary adventure to follow his idol Captain Qwark. Flying from planet to planet, Ratchet and Clank build up an incredible arsenal of weapons in the hope of catching up and taking down Drek. However, he soon discovers that Drek intends to destroy Ratchet's home planet, Veldin. Will Ratchet and Clank stop Drek before it's too late?

A fun adventure game (Video Game)
31 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ratchet and Clank is about a space creature (don't know what it's called) who meets a little robot named Clank. They join forces to stop the evil mad scientist. (I forgot his name.) Now, let's get to the good stuff.

Graphics- Ratchet works in 3-D. They're good, but not mind-blowing.

Level Design- Well, the levels vary, but it simmers down to fighting loads of enemies many of the times. Beside, there are too many of those door-opening puzzles.

Controls- The controls are smooth, and never hard to learn.

Diffculty- It never gets too difficult, and never too easy. It's about right.

Story- Well, it's not too good, but it's a video game! The cut scenes are hilarious though.

Variety- The variety is a bit limited sometimes, but new things are thrown into the mix here and there.

Shopping- You can buy plenty of weapons and ammo from the shops.

Rewards for completing the game- None
